The Singapore Robotic Games (SRG) is back for their 25th year! This is an interesting opportunity for robot lovers out there to watch specialized robots designed to compete in specific events, much like the Olympic games!
This event aims to teach the public that robots are capable of doing things other than industrial tasks. SRG provides a glimpse of how the world may be in a few years time, as Singapore gradually descends into an age where artificial intelligence is proliferated.
The event spans two days, 24 and 25 Jan, and includes many exciting events, including a robot soccer competition, a wall climbing robot competition and so much more! More information on the event can be found here, or in the infographic.
On Friday, 26 Jan 2018, there is a one-day SRG robotics workshop on deep learning for autonomous robotics. This is jointly organised by the Science Centre and is open to everyone. You can find out more about the event and if you’re interested, download the registration form via this link.
Want to learn more? Come down to the Omni-Theatre and check out the screening of “Robots”, a film by National Geographic! Get an insight into how these robots move, work, play and even look like us, and understand how these robots overcome challenges and make decisions. Book your tickets here.
So, what are you waiting for? Find out how these humanoid robots are revolutionising our world today. You may even be inspired to design a robot of your own and join the SRG next year! 😀
